MOBILE MIXING COMES TO MOTU INTERFACES - AudioTechnology
MOTU is now shipping Touch Console, a new mixing environment in its Pro Audio Control web app software specifically designed for mobile mixing on the touchscreen of a tablet or smartphone. Touch Console is now available as a free firmware update to all users of MOTU pro audio interfaces, including the 1248, 16A, 8M, 112D, 828es, UltraLite-mk4, UltraLite AVB, Monitor-8 and Stage-B16. The recently released 8pre-es already has Touch Console firmware installed.
Users launch the Pro Audio Control web app on their tablet or smartphone (iOS or Android) to access Touch Console, giving them intuitive, touchscreen-friendly control over the DSP-driven 48-channel mixer in their MOTU interface, with twelve busses and effects including four-band parametric EQ, dynamics processing, classic reverb and a model of the vintage LA-2A levelling amplifier.
Optimised for mobile devices, Touch Console provides fast, intuitive access to every setting for any channel. The ‘On Faders’ panel lets users instantly map sends for any bus or group to channel faders, providing long-throw fader control over send levels combined with easy channel navigation.
In the studio or on stage, multiple musicians can access the mixer’s seven stereo aux buses for wireless control over their own personal monitor mix from their smartphone or tablet.
